A Fine Pair of Louis XVI Style Gilt-Bronze Seven-Light Candelabra by Alfred-Emmanuel-Louis Beurdeley, after the model by François Rémond supplied for the Comte d'Artois' Turkish boudoir at Versailles.

The scrolling arabesque candle arms and corresponding sockets and drip plates are raised on a foliate cast central baluster, supported by finely cast ostrich figures. The circular base is finely cast with panels containing swags and foliate devices.

Camille Mestdagh in her book, 'L'Ameublement d'art français : 1850-1900', provides a comprehensive history of the firm of Beurdeley and their production, she illustrates an identical pair of candelabra after Rémond, by Alfred-Emmanuel-Louis Beurdeley to the present example. Mesdagh also illustrates an interesting design for an adaptation of this model by Beurdeley from 1893, which is now preserved in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, with the pair of Ostriches mounted on a tripod support.
